A question about animals and starters. In warm weather, car occasionally won't start if it's been sitting a while. If she waits a half-hour and tries again, it will start. Last time this happened, she opened the hood and found chicken bones, a bag of Doritos, and other food Related? No, they're not related. Starting problem is the fuel pump relay--common in these cars. Food is likely being left there by rats seeking refuge from Mayor Bloomberg.
